Said to be constructed from high-quality materials, a new range of locomotive servicing tools arrives in stock with the manufacturer.

DCC Concepts has manufactured a range of 4mm:1ft scale locomotive servicing cradles. Constructed from EVA, they can be used to hold locomotives for servicing, or to pick up locomotives from the layout without touching them.

Foam pads are provided to hold locomotives securely in place while servicing. The closed cell foam structure prevents detail becoming caught in the foam, causing potential damage to small parts. DCC Concepts said, "Our EVA material is soft enough to prevent damage while being firm enough to hold your locomotive securely and safely."
